According to Geekologie, there is a restaurant in Japan that is serving Pikachu-themed food. “The cafe will be open for a limited time (until August 31st) outside the Pokemon XY movie exhibit at Tokyo City View in Roppongi Hills.” Here is a sampling of the food you can order:
I don’t know if I could eat Pikachu’s little face, though…

AngelaBermudez, over at DeviantArt, commissioned this BioShock sculpture for Ken Levine (the creative director and co-founder of Irrational Games. He led the creation of BioShock.) What an amazing opportunity. And guess what? This was her second sculpture. EVER.

A member of the Sprite Stitch Forum, Remy, shared this story with us. I’ll let her tell it. “My really good friend Adam Reed had his co-worker, Dale, make him a wooden Golden Snitch ring box to propose to his wonderful lady, Lindsey Lowman, today on their anniversary. He took her to the local bookstore and popped the question. Epic proposal in my opinion. Dale does wonderful work and has a Facebook page here.”

KIDS REACT TO GAME BOY
Some of us have seen this, but if you haven’t, The Fine Brothers made a new “Kids React to” video. How do the kids react to an original Game Boy? Not well. Not well at all. It’s pretty awful, but at least it’s a reminder to teach our kids to appreciate the classics. Although, I do have to say, at least some of the kids realized why the Game Boy was important. And the kid in the green shirt wins.

The challenge for the months of April and May was themed “Dragons.” As blackmageheart explained, “Dragons are awesome. I will happily befriend, murder, eat and ride dragons all day long (although not necessarily in that order or at the same time.) There’s so many different varieties of dragon and related creatures that I’m sure there will be something for everyone. You can make any kind of dragon in any style and situation. Since you have until the end of May, you can make big ones or lots of small ones, whatever you like!”
And so, shall we see who won this noble challenge?
Miss Clawful took first place with this amazing stitch from The Immortal.
In joint second place were celebriwen with her Dragon and Knight papercutting:
and no_need with her Toothless plush:
And in joint third place are lcockitt with her Hidden Dragon:
and BeadedImagination’s Yoshi Evolutions:
